Bliss! A garden cafe with a low fence all the way round and stern signs on the two gates: ‘Please keep this gate firmly secured.’ The garden has tables with umbrellas in the garden and some inside seating. There is table service. Food and drink can also be purchased to take away.

The cafe serves full breakfasts, morning teas, drinks and snacks. Lunch is served from noon: filled baguettes, salads, soup and bagels are all on the menu. Also available are homemade cakes, sweet crepes, banana splits, biscuits and toasts. Cream teas can be ordered. A good range of juices, spiders, smoothies, soft drinks, teas and coffees is available for the young and thirsty.
